Go Ahead – Do What You Love

Description

Who’s telling you it’s unrealistic to pursue your dream?

A couple of years ago, when Joanne and I had a weekly radio show, we went to the company Christmas luncheon. As a show host we were treated to lunch and lots of other goodies. One of the other goodies was the privilege of having a caricature drawn by Tracy Latham. Tracy shared that he had read 48 Days to the Work You Love four years earlier and it inspired him to go into his business full-time. And that business is drawing these incredible caricatures.

Yes, people told him this was not realistic or practical – but he moved ahead anyway. Now he stays booked at corporate events, birthday parties, conventions, conferences, etc. He charges $100 an hour and is a continual crowd pleaser – staying booked months in advance.

We had the privilege of talking with Tracy and asking him a few questions:

Q: Did you go to school for this, or are you naturally talented?

A: I went to school to delay adulthood, and I am naturally lazy.

Q: What do you do when you are not doing this (party caricatures)?

A: When I am not drawing at gigs, I am trying to book more gigs.

Q: Do you ever do other kinds of art?

A: Only as time permits…my mother is still waiting for that oil painting of ducks on a lake.

Now who’s telling you it’s unrealistic to pursue your dream?
